We traveled in January so the tourists were at a low. We received a complementary upgrade on our room and were frankly spoiled where we ended up. It was an amazing room with a great shower! The staff was polite and very helpful on our first trip to Florence. They recommended restaurants that were very good and gave directions that were spot on. The location is a 5-10 minute walk from the train station that was aggrivating with luggage, but after our time in the city, it was evident the area immediately outside the train station is not the best area to stay. I think you'll find this true with many Italian cities. The Orto d'Medici is around the corner from the Academy of Art ("The David" among others...) and places you in a good position to walk to the heart of the city. Breakfast was nice, and the grounds are beautiful, especially the inner courtyard. I highly recommend you stay here!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Florence Hotel Orto de' Medici’s location is ideal because while located in the “historic center” of Florence it is just outside the noisy hustle and bustle…which is only a short walk away. When walking through our hotel in Florence, you really do feel like you are in a classic and upscale historic building. The front desk staff is very helpful and friendly, and from the moment you arrive you are made to feel very welcome. Each room is uniquely and elegantly appointed, a restful oasis for the busy traveler. The bathroom is very spacious and the shower is wonderful after a long day of sightseeing. Breakfast, with plenty to select from, is served in a cozy room that spills out into a welcoming patio and a beautiful little garden. The hotel lobby and reading rooms are a nice place to relax after a full day of sightseeing (plus free internet - either wifi or with brand new Apple computers). ... more less
